PHOTO AS ART
The emphasis of our curriculum lies on a thorough investigation of the photographic image within a socio-cultural context.
Applicants are open minded, creative and independent.
The photographic image is being approached as art form, in the broadest sense.
Alina Cristea (1 BA)
The starting point is the individual's instinctive need to express himself (visually). Producing images as a result of thinking and feeling (the step from the internal world to the external) is the embryo of 'exhibiting'. The course guides the process of 'exhibiting' (revealing/presenting an inner intellectual and/or emotional world) so that that inner world becomes visible and tangible to third parties.
Nano Wallenius (2 BA)
We strive for as broad a frame of reference as possible within which the students learn to situate their own work vis-à-vis contemporary art, the history of art, contemporary photography and the history of photography, but also within visual culture as a whole.
'Photohistory' and 'contemporary photography' therefore take a central position in the course and is being approached as part of the practice.
Finally, the course aims to heighten awareness of the individual's relationship with himself and with the world around him.
Charlotte Boeyden (2BA)
Students work in close collaboration and with personalized attention with the teaching staff. Besides that, regular visits are made to national and international exhibitions and noted photographers are invited to give workshops and lectures about their work. It is essential that the course conducts a permanent dialogue with what is happening outside the academy. (take a look at 'news')
